Mastering Number

Mastering Number at KS2

The NCETM launched Mastering Number at KS2 programme as a pilot in 23/24 academic year to secure firm foundations in multiplicative relationships.   We are delighted to confirm that this programme will run again in 24/25. This programme is for schools who are currently actively participating in Mastering Number at Reception and KS1 as well as fully engaged in the Sustaining Teaching for Mastery Work Groups ongoing.  Applications are currently open until Friday 21 June and places are limited.  Apply here.

Mastering Number at Reception and KS1

This project aims to secure firm foundations in the development of good number sense for all children from Reception through to Year 1 and Year 2. The aim over time is that children will leave KS1 with fluency in calculation and a confidence and flexibility with number. Attention will be given to key knowledge and understanding needed in Reception classes, and progression through KS1 to support success in the future.

Applications are currently closed but you can express your interest here for the next cohort in 2025/26.

Mastering Number – Embedding the Impact

Schools who have participating in the Mastering Number at Reception and KS1 in 2022/3 will be able to join this community where support will be offered to a nominated Lead Teacher (often the Maths Subject Lead), to help make Mastering Number a permanent element of the school curriculum.  You will be invited to join this programme at the end of your first year of Mastering Number.
